Nice purchase of 2 good Tools

You will not regret it.
The SWAG is on my Must purchase list.

Any questions on the lathe
Just shoot me a PM.

The only issue with the Swag adapter is the bend radius is large. they make an attachment that will make a tighter bend radius that I'm going to look into.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Going slow on the truck these days. Scratched the left bed side really pissed me off. just not enough room to move around the truck in the garage. I need a bigger shop but no room to expand.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Well its been along time sense I have posted on my blog. Trying to work on the truck in a small 2 car garage just ain't working and I have out grown it so I am moving to new house in Calaveras county still in California. the good news is the new house is twice the size as my other house and the garage X2 is 3 times the size and it has a car lift in one stall. I will be moving in about 30 days. Can't wait to get working on the truck again.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Congratulations on the new home. Good to see you may be moving forward again soon. I know how it is working in a two car garage. It has its challenges. Will make do myself until my mother in law has left us, love her to death and would never leave her. While my wife and I were born and raised in Ca, both my wife and I cannot see a reason to stay in Ca for the next move.
